Nicanor Parra, an eminent Chilean scientist-turned-poet who revolutionized Latin American verse by rejecting its flowery diction and forging a stripped-down, confrontational and darkly comic form that he dubbed “anti-poetry,” died Jan. 23 at his home in the La Reina section of Santiago, Chile. He was 103.
